"You need to see this photo, Drudge Report and Gawker," The Toronto Star tweeted today. The photo in question is of the ugliest mouse imaginable—veiny and bald and resembling an impossibly mutated monster's scrotum—with a tuft of coarse black hair growing from the back of its neck. The hair, the Star writes, is the product of revolutionary "bioengineered hair follicles" created by stem-cell researchers in Japan.

Did we really need to see this rodent? Does it make you want to ban stem cell research? How long until Jeremy Piven gets one of these grafted onto his scalp? Will Matt Drudge issue a statement on the alleged musophilic relationship the Toronto Star said he is having with this bald naked mouse, on Twitter, just paraphrasing? Please debate these pressing issues in the comments. [Toronto Star]
